Papertake Weekly Challenge :-)and some FAB news :-)

This is my last week as Guest Designer on the Papertake Weekly Challenge ,, the last 8 weeks have been wonderful ,, Dawny P and the DT have all been sooo nice to me ,,, which is why I am SOOO THRILLED to be joining them on the Design Team :-) YAY !!! Happy Dance :-) Can ya tell I am excited :-) !!

This week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge we have another one of Dawny P's fabulous sketches to follow :-) AND we are being sponsored by the one and only Kraftin Kimmie :-) Did you all join in the blog hop ? aren't the new designs fantastic !! :-) Kimmie and some members of her DT have joined us this week too :-) FUN !!

Kimmie very kindly gave the DT some of her fabulous stamps to use,,but before they arrived I had bought one !! :-)I had been wanting one of these lovely Moonlight Whispers stamps for a while so this was the perfect excuse for a little shopping spree to Bunny Zoe's Crafts :-) I have to tell you I ordered this, and a few other essentials,,,, :-) on Wednesday lunchtime and they were delivered at 8.30 am on Friday morning ,,,, in Gozo !!! Unbelievable !! I was hoping it MIGHT get here by Monday !! Thanks Nikki :-)

I used Clara for my card ,,, I coloured her with copics and decoupaged her and the birds onto white card. I coloured the edges with dusty concorde distress ink.
The papers are all from a gorgeous digi download from Digiscraps3 online store,, these are from the Winter Breeze Collection :-)

here's the arty farty angle as Dawny would say :-)

and a close up :-) The flowers are prima and the snowflake and ribbon are from my stash. The sentiment is a Punchem digi download from Funky Fairys Papercrafts ,,, these are fab ! :-) They are a perfect size to punch with SU oval punches ,,,, can't wait till mine arrive ,,,, 10 days to go ,,,, our friends are bringing them from UK for me :-),, along with a load of card and 2 laptops !! :-)

Here is the fab sketch for you to follow :-) Isn't it fab !! I will definitely be using this one again ,,:-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate each and every one of your comments and am gutted when I don't hae any new ones to read lol :-) So please leave me one before you hop off :-) You need to go to the Papertake Weekly Challenge blog to see what fabulous cards the DT have done and then pop by their blogs too to leave a nice comment :-)
I have a blog candy at the top of my blog sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek :-)
